Nathan Cattley After receiving cancer treatment at Mount Vernon back in 2016 Nathan became fit enough to run London Virtual Marathon 2020 in support of the Trust.

Despite the absence of the crowd he has showed outstanding results and was hugely supported by his friends and family along the way.

Nathon's fundraising achievement is now contributing to CTRT cancer research.

Thank you and well done!
Rich and Gail Rich and Gail - Team Virtual Marathon challenge True determination and mutual support demonstrated by Gail and Richard were outstanding. Some say virtual marathons are not as exiting... well, not when you have a crowd of friends and family memnbers who have supported these two along the way. Thank you for running for CTRT and well done! Rich and Gail's Fundrasing Page Chelsey Osborne Chelsey Osborne My experience: 'One of my biggest fears is heights so when I originally thought of doing a skydive for CTRT I was petrified. But the money raised made every second of fear worth it!'

Thank you Chelsey

Emily had great support from her School, Pupils of Stenning House and friends in year 7 not forgetting a very supportive family.  She has raised over £1,000.00 so far! James-Finch-Marathon James Finch Marathon 2018 it was a fantastic day that at times I loved and at times I hated! It really was tough both mentally and physically. The heat was intense and couldn't have contrasted more with the temperatures (and snow!) throughout the training period. I finished in 4h 51m.  I managed to see my wife and children just after Tower Bridge at the half way point which was so uplifting, and then again in the final finishing straight. I hope the money raised will help this fantastic charity.  Thank you James for raising a brilliant £2,391.75. Memory Brother Matt In Memory of my Brother, Matt It has been a privilege to be able to reach 4600 meters in Peru with such stunning views with an end point of Machu Picchu while raising money in the name of my beloved brother Matt.I’m looking forward to the next trip to raise awareness of skin cancer and to help my brother, Matt to still make a contribution to aid others as he always did when he was with us.

DAVE WORTHINGTON Dave Worthington London to Paris 2016

I enjoyed the ride, although day 2 was very wet and dreary! A great experience to cycle into Paris as a group, with locals cheering. I never thought I would ride along the Champs Elysee to the Arc de Triumph. I will certainly remember the event for a long time, as well as being a lot fitter than when I started training.

Angela Angela Completes the marathon Angela has raised the most money we have ever had for one of our Golden Bonds over £20k thank you Angela! Over to Angela...Wow, what a buzz! I completed the marathon in 6 hours and 3 minutes!! I did run a little (only when there was no one I knew around - so I didn't get into trouble with my husband :-)) I walked past several rhino's and a dinosaur - not often you can say that of a Sunday morning stroll around town.

So far I have raised £2800.99." Frances Mould Frances Mould Frances Mould Completed the London Marathon this year and raised an amazing £2797.64 to date. Back in 2001 I was told I had cancer, as you can imagine it came as quite a shock. Without the fantastic care of Professor Rustin and his team at Hillingdon and Queen Charlotte and Chelsea Hospitals I don't think I would be here today. Read Frances' Story Darrell Dolan Darrell Dolan Completed the London to Paris Bike Ride for the CTRT in May 2014 and raised £1135.00.

Rev Joan Foster Rev Joan Foster Abseils for CTRT "I only managed to have courage on the actual day so could just be sponsored retrospectively, but when people heard it was for the CTRT at Mount Vernon they responded well."

Joan's abseil opportunity was part of St Alban, North Harrow's Summer Fair which was advertised widely.
Jordan Stoughton Jordan Stoughton London to Paris bike ride: "It was an amazing achievement on my behalf I got off my bike at the end of the trip aching and very sore but also very proud of myself knowing that I'd completed the gruesome 4 day cycle in all weather conditions up and down hill. " MARY'S BOYS MARY'S BOYS In June 2013 we completed a cycle ride from London to Brussels. We hugely appreciate all donations for a fantastic cause that is close to all of our hearts. Marys Boys are named after Mary Carter (Lee's Mum) who sadly lost her battle with cancer in June 2012. Mary was an inspiration to us all, was always full of the joys of life and will be sorely missed by everyone who knew her. Click Here to read article in the Watford Observer The CTRT Appeal The CTRT Appeal The Cancer Treatment and Research Trust set up an appeal to raise funds to build a new Chemotherapy Suite for patients who visit the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre. The new Chemotherapy Suite was opened in 2010 by Sir Terry Wogan. It is a bright airy place for patients to come and receive their treatments. There is also a lovely outside space provided for patients and their friends and families if they wish to use it.
